Ie Writes About Man Who Has Beer
Attacking His Church.
Anderson Daily Mail.
Mr. Editor: I beg space in your es.
teemed paper today to place before it.
Teaders a matter which I trust you al
so will consider or grave importanc(
to a large number of your readers.
In the last issue of the Messenger z
prominent news journel -publishe<
weekly in McCormick, S. C., appeare<
the following paragraph:
"An interesting service at the Bap
tist church, morning and night, Rev
Augustin Dwyer will preach. He wil
also lecture several nights next weel
on Roman Catholicism, having beer
educated for a Catholic priest. Com
early and get a good seat. This is ai
opportunity you may not enjoy agaii
in a lifetime.
"S. R. Bass."
The "Reverend" Augustin Dwye:
has been in our section of countr:
for some time.
In Greenville he lectured in the Bap
tist church on "From Darkness *t
Light," or from "Romanism to Chris
tianity." In Anderson, he has lectur
ed also in the Baptist church, on som(
similar subjects. Throughout Ander
son county, I understand, he has ap
peared at a number of times in pulpi
and on platform entertaining his hear
ers with his views on "Romanism."
"Romanism" is a term that does no
express that religion to which I hav
the great honor and inestimable priv
ilege of belonging and therefore I hav
kept silent. But, now that the "Rev
erend" Augustin Dwyer comes befor(
the public as an exponent of Romai
Catholicism and claims to speak o1
that subject as one competent ane
duly qualified, I can keep silent n(
longer without being delinquent in m:
duty. That he has ceased to believ(
and practice the Catholic religion i1
his own affair between himself ane
Almighty God and on this head, there
fore, I have nothing to say; but I hav(
something to say concerning the cre
ibility of the "Reverend" gentlemar
as a witness competent to speak 0
Roman Catholicism or any other forn
of Christianity. In proof of which
permit me, Mr. Editor, to submit thf
following facts concerniPg his careel
to the consideration of your readers
He was born in Massachusetts of gooi
Irish Catholic parents (more disgrac4
to him!), studied some under the Je
suit Fathers in Boston and some a
St. Francis Xavier's college in Nov
York. He never has been professor
tutor nor instructor at the CatholiF
University of America, as has beei
stated In his circulars. He was neve:
matriculated there even as a student
He did, however, obtain permission t4
St. Mary's seminary as a candidat<
for sacred orders but was shortly e
pelled, a-cording to a document oi
file fro'n the archbishop's secmtary

pleasure of it." In 1888 he was ac
cepted on probation as a Paulist No
vice. He was expelled from the Pau
list Novitiate, as the records show,
for "inveterate lying, fraud and de
ceit." He has made use of a letter
from Father Deshon of the Paulist
Order, stating that "he was under no
canonical impediment," which is a
technical expression, in substance
equivalent to that of a civil judge re
marking, concerning an individual that
I "no sufficient reason has been brought
I before me why this man should go to
jatq." "With characteristic drollery,"
says Father MacCorry 'of the Paulist
order, "Dwyer in his booklet and else

letter to read February, 1908, whereas

L editorship of the Orphans' Bouquet
nor on the reason of his relinquishing
this position and leavng Boston, nor
can I but make mention that he was
a "Universalist" in Roxbury, Mass.;
that he repented and abjured, under
solemn oath "his errors;" that soon
-after this, he was associated with the
Shakers; that, after leaving them, the
printing shop of the Rosary Maga
zine, of Somerset, Ohio, was vociferous
in its echoes to his plaintive wail of
gratitude that "Almighty God had
brought him back once more to the
faith of his foresires;" that he has
said some guileless. things in public
about his experience as a Dominican
t novice- but the record shows that he:
never set foot across the threshold of
the Dominican novitiate, although he
did have a job of general utility man
around the presses, eight miles dis
tant from the cloister, and the record
i further states "he affected the airs of
a dilettante and the role of a penitent
I and his fellow workmen came to des-,
pise him and he proved himself such
an unmitigated liar that he was or
dered to quit the premises;" that soon
he had another "call" this time the
"voice" came from Westminster, Md.,
from the Episcopalian "monastery" of
Holy Cross; that the "fathers" of this
place refused finally to accept him for
orders; that after another "repen
tance" and abjuration of "his errors"
he is again a Catholic, connected with
the fathers of the blessed sacrament
and their paper, "The Sentinel;" that
once more -he was expelled for con
duct I do not care to speak of at pres
ent; that in 1904, he found favor in
Mr. Roosevelit's eyes, went to Spain
where he "stereopticoned the roya.l
court," descended upon Rome, and
about to be ordained 'when investiga
tion was begun and once more the
"reverend" gentheman had to look for
another "call" that next he became
",the celebrated convert from Roman
ism" under Methodist auspices.
In 1908 under the direct patronage
sponsorship of the ministerial union
-of Cleveland, Ohio, whose president
was the Rev. C. A. Mitchell, 'his out
rageous 'abuse of the Catholic religion
ibrought upon him an expose of his
-life and a challenge to his sponsors.
SThis challienge, Mr. Editor, was not
answered for reason only too evident,
and so it still stands before the world.
This challenge contains charges that
can not be passed over in silence
either 'by the "Reverend" Mr. Dwyer
or -by any one who stands sponsor for
Lest it be thought that I am making
mere assertions and am unfair in my
criticisms of the "Reverend" Augustin

Editor, I do so with the gre4atest re
luctance but from a high sense of

One word more to bring the "Rev

'Last summer he was booked to lec

Uethodist. The Methodist minister of

members of his congregation, of the
'Reverend" Mr. Dwyer's history and
the result was that the lecture was

sheville and there became an ardent
member of the Baptist church whose
pastor was-and is still, I believe, a
Reverend Doctor Vines. From Ashe
